What discipline/s do you compete in?
Dressage - We are currently competing at Prelim/Novice, we have qualified for the summer regionals at Prelim Level and have just been out this month and completed our first Novice tests and gained enough sheets to compete at the Pet Plan Area Festival First Round at Novice Level, we are also in the process of getting our music together so we can try and gain points for the Winter Music regionals.
I am 22 years old and just coming to the end of my first year as a student veterinary nurse, I have been competing at dressage for many years with my welsh cob x and have had some wonderful success winning the BRC Intermediate Championships 2015 & 2016 and the BRC NAF National Open Championships 2016 with my team mate from Stoneleigh Riding Club. I have also represented my Pony Club at the Dengie Dressage Championships and came 3rd overall.
This past 12 months have been amazing with my new horse, after attending two rounds at the Pet Plan Areas we got a wildcard to go to the Championships in April at Hartpury We were not expecting too much as it was her first major completion; there were over 40 in the class, but she was amazing. I couldn't have asked for more, her transitions are still a little green, but we smashed our personal best and scored 70% finishing 5th.
Since the winter we have qualified for Trailblazers by winning my class at Fieldhouse Equestrian, gained our qualifying points for the Prelim Summer Regionals and very recently moved up to novice and after two outings got our qualifying sheets to attend the first rounds of Pet Plan.
My goal this year is to try and win a Regional Title and Qualify for the Pet Plan Finals again at the next level (Novice).
